Sponsor: Birmingham Airport Limited
The proposal seeks to establish revised departure routes from runway 15 utilising Performance-based Navigation (PBN) technology,
following the extension to the airport’s instrument runway.
As part of the original decision to approve the airspace change requested by Birmingham Airport Limited (BAL) the CAA set a number of conditions, one of which required BAL to conduct a further trial of 'Option 5' for turboprop-driven aircraft. More detail on this can be found in our Decision document on this page (para 126-7).
The CAA has now received representations from Birmingham Airport Limited (BAL), which in the interests of transparency, we are making available to the aviation community: BirminghamAirportRunway15DecisionResponse
Comments on BAL’s proposal will be gratefully received by 9 September 2016: BALoption5trial@caa.co.uk

Decision document (CAA change approval)
suspended its request for approval of the 2 northbound SIDs (as discussed in
the Decision document, paragraph 17). BAL has re-designed the SIDs.
The aim of the re-design work was to produce aircraft tracks that better
reflected the proposals consulted upon. BAL has submitted these
re-designs to the CAA. BAL has asked the CAA to commence its
consideration of its proposals for the northbound SIDs. The CAA is now
commencing its consideration under Stage 5 of the ACP process.
